Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is Hair from Russia The Best Type Of Hair For Extensions?
Russian Hair extensions are of the highest quality, softest and smoothest hair available in the world. The quality of the hair extensions plays a large part in determining whether or not your hair extensions will look real and will also affect the way the hair feels, the way it moves, the way it falls, how it behaves when attached to your own hair.
Improperly selected hair textures i.e. Indian or Chinese, will always look “odd” and will never really blend, move or style like your own hair if you are not of a similar ethnic group and do not have a similar texture. It may also tangle with your own hair due to the different texture and cuticle.
The finest quality hair is Russian. This hair is a different texture and quality compared with lower quality Chinese, Asian or Indian hair which is often mixed with animal or synthetic hair and can be too coarse and become tangled.
What sort of extensions do you use?
We exclusively use Virgin Russian human hair to offer soft, light, silky, healthier, durable and natural hair installation. See our page on the benefits of Virgin Russian hair for more information.
Why are I tips and Tape extensions better than wefts?
Wefts can feel quite bulky and uncomfortable and can also be time consuming to install and maintain. I Tips and Tape extensions are softer looking and the weight is better distributed throughout the layering process which is safer for your hair. They blend more naturally with your own hair and are better disguised – like a thin veil through the hair and are also more secure.
